Building an online presence for artists & performers

All this talk about growth, scaling and 10X is ok for some businesses. When you’re in the arts, it’s more about making enough to get by.

When the creative life chose you, there were probably some concessions you had to make. Your lifestyle would have to change a bit. You’d probably have to get used to having a less regular income. And then there was all this cringey self-promotional stuff you’d have to do to get your work out there.

And while most of the approaches to business online are based around the types of small business that fit into a more regular-shaped box, creative-based businesses felt behind.

In this webinar made specifically for those who are artists, performers, musicians and creatives, you’ll learn:

How to build your own website suitable for a portfolio or gallery
How to create a realistically manageable social media presence
How to advertise yourself without spending a fortune
How to manage your creative workflow with too much administrative work
How to invoice and get paid easily, both in-person and online
Dante St James has worked with dozens of creatives over the past three years in the ASBAS Digital Solutions program. Through this he has brought together the five main digital activities that most creatives need when it comes to setting themselves up for a business in the arts.
